(Pak Destiny) Retired Gen Pervez Musharraf has appeared to be a back-stabber of his benefactor. Embroiling retired Gen Raheel Sharif in the controversy that he (Raheel) used his influence to provide him relief from the court and managed his departure from Pakistan is really shameful.
Federal Minister for States Lt Gen (retd) Abdul Qadir Baloch today said that Musharraf crossed all limits by making claims against former chief of army staff Gen (retd) Raheel Sharif.
Musharraf had claimed that ex-army chief Gen Raheel Sharif helped him leave the country by keeping the government from pressuring the courts.
Watch what Musharraf had said on this
“Musharraf should not have talked in such a blatant manner, even if Raheel had played a role in this issue. Musharaff should have realised the implications of this statement,” said the minister while speaking in a Geo News talk show. He added that the Supreme Court should now come forward and every individual concerned should submit their clarification in this regard before the apex court.
PPP stalwart Sharmila Farooqi also criticised the PML-N government saying that the government had allowed Musharraf to travel abroad.
Musharraf had left the country for Dubai in March earlier this year hours after the interior ministry issued a notification to remove his name from the exit control list (ECL). The government notification followed the Supreme Court’s order to lift the ban on his foreign travel.
Mmusharraf’s statement is very damaging for Gen Raheel. Musharraf should not have stabbed in the back of his benefactor. Its shameful… isn’t it. Musharraf should think about it. — Pak Destiny
